A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Millennium Park and Basilica of the Sacred Heart. Discover out-of-the-way places like Starved Rock State Park and Silver Beach Carousel. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chicago: Rockford (Anderson Japanese Gardens & Midway Village & Museum Center), Six Flags Great America (in Gurnee) and Saint Joseph (St. Joseph Lighthouses, Silver Beach County Park, & more). And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at The Art Institute of Chicago, admire the majestic nature at Potato Creek State Park, meet the residents at Shedd Aquarium, and explore and take pictures at Wrigley Field.

To see ratings, other places to visit, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Chicago trip planner .

In June, plan for daily highs up to 81°F, and evening lows to 63°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
